The Blackout's latest single, Ambition Is Critical, was given its premiere last night on Daniel P Carter's Radio 1 Rock Show and was immediately made available as a free download on the Merthyr band's website.
The anthemic tune is the first single to be taken from Hope, The Blackout's third album. Hope is being self-released following the band's one-album deal with the Epitaph label, and has been part-funded through the PledgeMusic scheme of revenue generation.
